I went here after dinner and was not disappointed. The desserts were beautiful and tasted fantastic! I had a passion fruit chocolate cake and it was delicious. I took it to go so my wait was not that long at about 8pm at night. Highly recommend!

The desserts are good but pricey, BUT well worth the wait and the price. Some of the wait staff could be a bit more attentive but other than that YUMMY!

We ended up visiting behind a huge gaggle of bike riders who were giving the staff a hard time, but the staff handled it beautifully. Desserts are gorgeous and tasty. Paired with a latte or tea and you've got a great afternoon treat.

Just about any dessert here is a meal in itself but one you will gladly forgo your main course for.. Decadent desserts which are masterpieces - both visually and in taste are in most cases extremely rich and heavy. I've been here for dinner only once and even splitting a salad with my husband in preparation of the dessert had... More

Don't get me wrong, I am big fan of their desserts. Every time I have guests from out of town I take them to the store at Union street.

I really enjoyed the dulce de leche cheesecake we had here and the other desserts they had all looked fantastic. What is hard to get over is paying $8.50 for a pot of tea and they didn't bring out sugar/lemon, I had to grab that myself.
